Help

all of a sudden I have no power in the upstairs portion of my house, I went down and checked the curciut breaker and it was not popped. I reset it anyway and still nothing upstairs. Has the breaker gone bad?

Going to need and know how to use a volt ohm meter for this one.
Feel comfortable working around an open breaker box?
Is it the lights and the outlets?

I doubt it. How many circuits serve the upstairs? Any other outages in the house?

I would check to see if there is a GFCI outlet in one of the bathrooms or possibly in the garage that has tripped.

Please see the troubleshooting sticky at the top of this forum and let us know the result. An open neutral will cause the circuit to stop working.
